Local authors in booksigning at Library today

Area authors will sign copies of their books today.
Seven area authors will be at the Plainfield Public Library this afternoon to sign copies of their books. The event is part of the continuing annual book sale by the Friends of the Plainfield Public Library (FOPPL).

Longtime Plainfield activist and cultural maven Nellie Dixon will be on hand to sign copies of her new published murder mystery 'Midnight Mayhem'.

Nellie will be known to many as one of the prime movers for many years of the annual Plainfield Outdoor Art Festival as well as her time as an executive with the Plainfield YWCA.

Also participating in the event will be --

  • Linda Barth, whose books include a history of invention in New Jersey as well as a pictorial book on the Delaware & Raritan Canal. She is currently executive director of the League of Historical Societies of NJ;

  • Tom Brown, retired president of Union County College and Plainfield resident, who recently completed a history of the college titled 'Creating a Leader Among Its Peers', tracing the years from 1990 - 2010;

  • Janet Hillman, whose special interest is children's books keyed to literacy;

  • Eric Neirstedt, a writer of fantasy and science fiction who will sign copies of his 'The Lightrider Journals'. Eric is also the son of Plainfield's Planning Director Bill Nierstedt;

  • Joanne Rajoppi, who besides being the Union County Clerk is an author and will sign copies of her recently published 'New Brunswick and the Civil War'; and

  • Azuka Zuke, a motivational speaker and author who will be signing copies of his book 'The Power to Excel: Reaching For Your Best'.
The book signing will take place from 2:00 - 4:00 PM in Room 2 on the Library's lower level, adjacent to the Book Sale taking place around the pool area.

The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
